A little bit salty and a little bit sweet, these chocolate covered cracker cookies make the perfect afternoon snack.

We come to the last of the peanut butter recipes. Ok,I take that back. I will definitely still be having lots of peanut butter recipes. But, this is the last of the peanut butter recipes for this week!!

When I was thinking of the peanut butter recipes that I wanted to try, I wanted something that would make a good mid-day snack, something that both my kids and I would like. And yes – this time I am combining not only peanut butter and jelly, but I’m throwing chocolate in there as well. All in a little 2 bite snack. These take your run of the mill peanut butter crackers and turn them into something so much more.

Wanna see how to make them?

You start out with some buttery round crackers.  Spread half of them with peanut butter, and the other side with jelly.  Use whatever is your favorite – my family loves strawberry, so that is what I went with.

Then you sandwich them together.  You could totally stop here and have a delicious snack, but we are going to take it one step further!

By dipping them in chocolate!!  I used chocolate flavored almond bark, but you could use regular chocolate as well.  I just think it’s easier to dip in almond bark.  You’ll want to cover them completely.

Lay them on a piece of waxed paper, and allow the chocolate to dry.  It doesn’t take long, and good thing – because if you have little hands in the kitchen, they will be grabbing for these!

Don’t forget to check out the recipe on Tablespoon, (recipe is also below).  And I have 2 other peanut butter recipes that I won’t be posting here, but make sure and check them out over at Tablespoon!

  10. Ive made PB cups with Ritz Crackers in them but never thought to add jelly and I made them in paper cups so they got massively thick. I love your idea to just dip them, rather than put them into a cup. I need these! Loved your week this week!

  11. Simple yet delicious – I love it and I bet your kids did too!

  12. Stephanie says:

    I make something similar. I use Ritz crackers. Put peanut butter on one and marshmallow creme on the other, put them together, dip in chocolate and put on aluminum foil on cookie sheet to dry. Delicious.
